Established Asia Pacific affiliate network Commission Factory has announced that they have signed a global strategic partnership with innovative European affiliate network Awin.
The partnership between the two companies will continue and expand upon innovative technology as well as a dedicated, experienced global team with local market knowledge to propel online retailers even further.
Commission Factory’s clients will now have greater reach into the UK and Europe and after this year’s announcement of Awin’s acquisition of US network Shareasale — significant access to the USA market as well.
Awin is a global powerhouse for affiliate marketing technology and service. With over 900 employees based in 15 locations and 17 years of experience in the industry, the company is servicing some of the world’s most well known brands such as ASOS, Expedia, AliExpress, Ticketmaster and British Airways to name only a few of their thousands of advertisers being promoted by over one hundred thousand affiliates. Awin is one of the few that have successfully blended global reach with local expertise.
“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with a network like Awin. We’ve watched their innovation for years from across the pond and their values, growth and desire to provide a great experience and service for their clients aligns with our own,” said Zane McIntyre, chef executive and co-founder of Commission Factory. “APAC’s online marketplace has come a long way in recent years and in partnering with Awin we can accelerate the growth of our home-grown retailers and provide expansion and reach to our clients that on our own we may not have been able to achieve.”
Providing powerful technology coupled with service and strategic insights to customers sits at the forefront for both Commission Factory and Awin. In recent years, Awin has launched innovative tools including cross-device tracking and influence payments for publishers, while Commission Factory offers weekly payments on approved transactions, real-time tracking and reporting and a mobile app for both advertisers and publishers.
“This partnership is a natural step for Awin and our growing global client base. Like any new territory, there are subtle aspects that can mean the difference between good and great. Ensuring this knowledge through Commission Factory whilst applying our proven service and compliance methodology provides the best foundation for success in this region,” said Mark Walters, CEO of Awin.
